I have used Stencil Girl Rose Window stencil to add interest on the background of my card.

Sending big hugs card #1

I sponged Simon Says Stamp Mint ink on the Rose Window stencil on my white card base. I sponged the ink from the centre fading to the outside of the stencil. This gives a nice soft ombre effect. I love the details of the stencil on the card front.  

Sending big hugs closeup #1

For the focal floral cluster I have used  the negative from Simon Says Stamp Single Roses dies. I had the watercoloured negative die cuts left over after I had use the positive die cuts on another card. I clustered them for my focal point. They have some gorgeous shimmer from Wink of Stella pen. The Sentiment is from Big Scripty Greetings also from Simon Says Stamp which I stamped using Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink.  To frame the sentiment, I added a few more leaves diagonally opposite to the focal cluster. Finally embellished with 4mm Gold sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and copper sequins from Little Things by Lucy
